Life can be OK if you put the effort in.

I don't understand Reddit or subreddits. I always blamed my problems on other people and didn't think anything of it, I worked in a grocery store (nothing wrong with that) but had no aspirations or drive to go beyond £7.60 and hour for 21 hours a week, I paid my bills ran out of money and had to work another 3 weeks with no money and just assumed this was all I would ever do, pressure was mounting and I have to try and find another place to live with approximately no money as I rented my current place from a relative for almost nothing as well as it being pet friendly for me and my adopted dog. I found somewhere I couldn't afford and almost signed a contract to move in, the place was £600 a month not including bills so I already knew I was in trouble, on the way to the estate agent with the signed contract I was hit by a car and fractured my acetabular (hip socket) I needed 7 permanent pins, a metal plate and permanent metal stitching, not to mention I couldn't walk for three months. Aside from the crippling pain, the soul crushing physio and the weight added to my busy loved ones I made remarkably good recovery, it was so good my surgeon and consultant had never seen anything like it ever. It changed my life, I sat in the road after the person that hit me drove off and eventually a younger couple found me and called an ambulance. I knew when I met the paramedics despite the drugs given to me that I had to give something back, the whole experience and the people involved were and still are incredible, from the paramedics that scraped me off the pavement to my consultant, nurses, physio and everyone between it changed my life.

I am as good as I am going to ever get and I'm fine with it, I can walk and it's still painful but it's a reminder of what life was like before this happened and it's keeping me on track. I started a health science degree to train to become a paramedic and I had just been given a job as a private care worker for a really great guy so I will start to repay what I owe and try to give back from what changed my life and hope I can do the same for someone else.

TLDR: I had a job I would be working in for the rest of my life with no apparent escape, got hit by a car, went flying and had an experience that changed my life, got a job that I can use to try to change peoples lives and high hopes for the future.

Got a huge scar on my butt cheek too but I would have to post this as NSFW.

My dad said ignore them and I told my dad to open the window. He didn't. So I opened my wallet and opened the door and gave this person all the money I had in my wallet (around $50) and I come back in the car and my dad was like "why the hell you could have been kidnapped etc" and then I felt good and I hope I made that persons day and they totally didn't look like a junkie. But yeah then we drove back that same way an hour or so later and this person had a small bag of dog food and were sitting down eating what looked like soup. But I always make sure to give to those who are worse off than me. Anyways just wanted to share that story. 🙂

Healthy snacks at the office for a change!


Healthy snacks at the office for a change!

My office manager came back from Sam's Club this morning with a veggie tray, tangerines and "Bai" Tea (never heard of it until today but appears to be pretty healthy).

I haven't been this excited about food in the office in a while. It's usually donuts, bagels, pizza, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm not really complaining about the unhealthy stuff but I don't really like eating it and/or having to be tempted by it. It's great they bring us food but I'm so much happier today with actually healthy food!
